#10: Views On Drugs & Alcohol
October 14, 2013 § Leave a comment
Okay kids, don’t take drugs*. It will destroy you.
*p.s: Weed is not counted.
Instead, drink a lot. Drink when you’re happy, drink when you’re unhappy, drink when you’re feeling nothing, drink when you’re on a date, drink when you’re with friends, drink when you’re with strangers, drink when you’re with colleagues, drink when you’re alone.
Especially when you’re alone. I love drinking alone and the warmness that fill up my throat and my lungs.
Apparently, according to many, drinking alone is one of the warning signs of both alcoholism and depression. Hey, why don’t you go tell it to Hemingway?
Hemingway once said, “I drink to make other people more interesting.” Well, when you drink alone, you make yourself more interesting!
In fact, according to a few studies, intelligent people drink more alcohol.
Gentle reminder though, do stay away from Twitter, Facebook, e-mail, and most importantly, your phone when you’re drinking. “THE WORLD SUCKS” is not a good tweet and “I MISS YOU CAN I COME OVER” is not a good message to your ex.
Sometimes, people like to use alcohol as an excuse to do things that they’ve wanted to do but have no balls to do when they’re sober. Sometimes, it can be used to make the best decision like finally completing the piece of writing you’ve been wanting to (like this blog post and more to come), or expressing your overdue, repressed feelings towards the person you like since forever, or to forgive your old friend over a silly mistake, or to kiss a stranger.
But sometimes, alcohol is exploited by douchebags who blame their impulsive horniness on alcohol and I truly despise these people. Hello, blame it on your inability to think and your lack of balls.
Alcohol, if put to good use, is the best thing in the world. It makes you happy, trippy, warm, funny, sociable and honest.
Bukowski, Vincent Van Gogh, Churchill, Alexander the Great, they’re all drunks and they all changed the world.
The answer may not lie at the bottom of the bottle, but it can’t hurt to check.
